About Robert and Mary Hopkins

We did the usual Disney bit when our kids were young but found the chill out week on the South West coast the biggest attraction. The quality and pace of life really attracted us then and nothing hs changed. Both my wife and I work in very demanding jobs. Sunset Hideaway is the place where we both really relax. I`m sure you will find the same.

Robert and Mary Hopkins purchased this villa in 2007

Why Robert and Mary Hopkins chose Pine Valley

Sitting on the lani watching the canal flow by with all the wildlife is positively the best thing I can imagine. It keeps us going through the long winter nights.

What makes this villa unique

Everything you need is there including every possible appliance, towels, bikes (4), a library of books and DVDs etc etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic and relaxed holiday we experienced during our stay for 10 days in the villa.

All the needs for comfortable living are present. A great location, well decorated and furnished rooms. Nice beaches on a short drive by car.

Visiting a “Stone Crabs” baseball match is an must to do.

Thanks to Mary and Robert Hopkins for the correct and helpfull handling !

We certainly will recommend this villa to friends.

Relaxing stay on the water

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned home from two wonderful months at this house. We had vacationed in Rotonda West before, but this was the first time that we had been right on the water, and loved it! Identifying the various birds that visited right outside of the lanai became a favorite pastime, and watching for an alligator swimming by was also fun. (We kept a pair of binoculars right on the outside table and they were used frequently) We love the area - a short drive to great beaches in Boca Grande or Manasota Key, but many a day were spent relaxing at the house with the heated pool right there. The house was exactly as described, clean, and comfortable. It was nice to have the small den with a pull-out couch and TV in case guests overlapped or just when someone wanted to watch something different on TV from the larger one in the family room. The Xfinity "on demand" feature of the TV service was very nice to have, so that we could watch our favorite shows at our convenience. We made good use of the "golf scoop" program. If you are a golfer and think that you would want to play at least twice a week, this is a real money-saver. The golfers in our group played about 5 times per week, and loved the courses. We did have a few minor issues with the air conditioning, the pool heater, and a broken door lock, but property manager Hugh was just a phone call away and any problems were addressed immediately. The owners were also very responsive to our needs both before we arrived and while we were there. I would recommend this property to others.

Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home this is! Everything so carefully thought out and catered for - right down to the box of pool toys on the lanai! Everything was spotlessly clean and felt like a home the moment you walked through the door!!

We have stayed in many villas in the past and this is up there as one of the best!

The pool area was perfect to sit and watch the sun rise from and listen to the bird world wake - and then was still in the sun all day! When we are lucky enough to return to Rotonda - which hopefully won't be too long - we wouldn't hesitate to book this home again!!

Clean, Comfortable and Spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our vacation and our stay at your house in Rotonda West. It was every bit as nice as we expected.The beds were comfortable and there were ample linens available. The kitchen was well equipped for those times when we wanted to dine in but there were several restaurants close by for when we wanted to eat out.

We loved the wildlife in the area and all the different species of birds, such as Eagels, Owls and great Blue Herons to mention a few. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, close to several golf courses and a nice trail to walk, jog or bike along. The lanai had lots of room and plenty of chairs to lounge around the pool. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to anyone.

We take great care to keep it to a high standard and visit as often as we can, it really is our 'home from home'. We both hope that if you are down this way again, you would consider staying at our home again. You would be extremely welcome. Robert and Mary

This is a wonderful, peaceful area of Florida's gulf coast. You can sit and chill by the pool, enjoy a BBQ and enjoy watching the local wildlife, especially water birds. You can visit numerous beaches, a different beach every day of the week. For fun shopping, visit Port Charlotte or Venice, visit the outlets, or enjoy some more sophisticated shopping at St Armands Circle in Sarasota. For an exhilarating experience, hire a boat and explore the intercoastal waterway. You can drive yourself, use the services of a guide, or join one of the many boat trips available locally. This is a perfect area to cycle, it's flat and we have four good bicycles which you are most welcome to use at your own risk. We have an excellent homecare service ensuring that our home will be ready for your arrival, immaculate, lights on and with small miniatures to see you through your first night. We do have a 14/7 emergency service, but please only use this for real emergencies out of hours!

The area offers a fabulous, peaceful holiday where you can sit back and relax, but for the more adventurous, there is plenty to keep you busy! There is a play area in the centre of Rotonda if you have children and there are tennis courts for the very active. Come and visit, one stay is never enough!
